Ground line hydraulic pumps can shift concrete at 1 m³ each minute and can extend to a distance of around 150 meters, in order to reach the pour site.
How Far Can Concrete Be Pumped?
Concrete pumping is a technique used to transfer concrete from a mixing truck to the desired location. This method is used when the concrete cannot be poured into place, or when it is too difficult to move the concrete from the mixing truck to its destination. Concrete pumping can also be used to move concrete up to great heights and distances, but there are practical limits to how far concrete can be pumped.
The distance that concrete can be pumped depends on several factors, including the amount of concrete, the size of the hose, the type of pump and the pressure of the concrete. Generally speaking, concrete pumps can move concrete up to 200 feet horizontally, and up to two stories vertically. However, these distances can vary depending on the specific factors mentioned.
Concrete pumps are equipped with a hopper, which holds the concrete until it is ready to be pumped. The hopper is attached to a pipe, which is connected to a pump. The pump pushes the concrete through the pipe and out of the end of the hose. The hose is connected to an outlet, which is placed at the desired location.
The size of the hose is a major factor in determining how far the concrete can be pumped. Larger hoses can handle more concrete and can
